This is a photo of all 264 of us missionaries here at the Florida Jacksonville Mission at our December Christmas Party. Can you find Waldo/Me? I am the tiny person in kinda the exact middle of the photo. Happy times!We had an interesting week this past one. It is tough getting to know a new person, especially when you know you have to be with this person 24/7. If you have any advice PLEASE give it to me. My new companion and I went out tracting lots this week and found some good potentials. I taught the Restoration the first time the whole way through. Normally Sister Kasteler and I would switch off and soon my new companion will be able to do that too. It wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be though! We have a return appointment with them this coming Friday. This family are Southern Baptist like most persons here.
Being a trainer is hard. It is hard to know exactly what to do all the time. Now I understand why my trainer was always pushing me, because even though I have been out three months I still have little idea of what I am supposed to be doing all the time. There were a lot of changes in our district and zone so I don’t know many people anymore. It teaches you to really rely on what you know is right and what God is wanting you to do. My new companion is Sister E. She had been in the Mission Training Center in Utah for three weeks and then came here to Lake City. She is the most annoying person ever. hahaha I don’t think she actually is, it’s more me just being frustrated with myself. I am learning a lot from her and am learning to love her AND be patient with myself!
I guess the most important part of this entry is you are AWESOME! Thank you for your amazing uplifting messages. I love you and miss you so very much. Thanks to all for your emails, letters, for the news about the upcoming Olympics…GO CANADA!…and….more family history done, yeah!!!
Love to all from, Sister Winkler
